Daniel Copher on April 17, 2021:

The organ is incorrectly listed as a Schantz organ - it was assembled using various parts in the 60s by local technician, Cortese, including a used Schantz console.

Updated by Douglas Cable, who maintains the organ.

Schantz provided the console. Pipes are supply house. Chests built by Cortese.
